The creator of NYC Independent Film Festival and Parody 48 Hour Film Contest is introducing the Producer’s Club Short Play Contest. Dennis Cieri, the President of Cieri Media said, “The Producer’s Club Short Play Contest is to encourage emerging writers and find original shows we can produce. There are so many talented playwrights out there and this will give an opportunity for the best of them. They also win an amazing prize package of a finished professionally produced video of their play.” There is no fee to submit the play to the contest. The five best plays submitted will be selected and performed. Once accepted, a $300 refundable deposit will be required. The deposit is returned as long as 20 tickets are sold for their play in total to all three performances assigned to the show.

The submission deadline is May 10th 2013. The judges will announce their selections on May 24th and the successful writers will be notified via email. During the course of the performances, three judges will attend, one per performance, to judge the plays. Winners will be announced one week after the last performance. After all plays have had their three-performance run, the first place play will receive a $2,000.00 video package. All plays selected will be given a three-performance run at the Producer’s Club on 44th street and 9th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, NY.

Cieri Media currently has two other ventures: the NYC Independent Film Festival and Parody 48 Hour Film Contest. NYC Independent Film Festival is a celebration of the true independent filmmaker, documentaries, short and feature-length films, music videos, and animation. Whether a submission is comedic, dramatic, or something in between, The NYC Indie Film Fest is eager to embrace fresh ideas and storytelling. The film festival aims to discover the artist filmmaker, showcasing them to the entertainment industry and the NYC public.
